New Year's is better than Christmas

On New Year's, you just get together to eat and drink and make resolutions that might fade away mid-January. Christmas has better food, but can get stressful trying to get the right and affordable presents.

I suppose they are both different. In England, the big celebration is Christmas, with New Year being less so. In Scotland, it's like the other way round, and New Year is the big celebration.

 

Christmas is all presents, food and a day spent at home with family and friends, or even a meal out. New Year's Eve is a big raucous party with friends, and rather a lot of gratuitous kissing.

 

Both different, both enjoyable!

Yes, definitely pluses with both celebrations! There's also New Year's Day and its traditions. Among my more traditional Asian friends, that day's meal can be a huge deal with eating food for good luck plus paying respect to older relatives.

Every year on Christmas day, we get to sit together as family, bond and take a look at the highlights of the year. It is a time to buy presents, make merry and generally hang around relatives.

 

The New Year is normally less formal and people are free to plan their own trips as they so wish. Both are great because of the bonding and celebrations involved,

That sounds like something one normally does on New Year's Eve, doesn't it? Then again, I think back a lot when December comes. Time always goes by so quickly that you'll only realize it at the end of the year.

 

I feel that New Year events are more exciting in general (even though accidents also happen a lot more).
